We then headed up the Pollone Valley to the Pollone Lake with Mt Fitz Roy north face above it and the Fitz Roy ...
We travelled from El Calfate by bus to the Perito Merino Glacier. The glacier was enormous and calved regularly throughout our watch - booming sounds and falling ice into the surrounding lake was so dramatic we could barely tear ourselves away! We then got on a boat and travelled to an island where we were guided ...
